I am sorry. I was once one of those that thought Kyosho cost was not worth it. Then in May i built one, and i will tell you. They have a lot of ideas that are built into the MP9 that are very trick, and very well thought out. Remember, Losi was the first company to completely step away from the Kyosho design. Mugen wasn't exactly the same, but still many of the same elements. Losi changed that with the 8ight.

But the Kyosho design works. It is the reason AE copies the geometry and suspension to a T with the newest rc8B variation that won the Nats. Losi is going with the same steering to as it was being tested at the Nats by a few key drivers.

But back to the subject. Mark is a great driver, and even better representative for any company. Losi grew when Mark signed on with them.

I think he meant same. And it is true...we don't see any of the geometry copy-cat stuff...I remember Stephen Bess writing about how the XRAY buggy was basically a Losi clone in terms of geometry.

Sorry, mean to have an M not the L.


The new steering parts are so new, only 4 drivers had them at the Nats. And all of them were pictured with wheels, making it hard to see the different parts.



If you look at the bellcranks, you can see the acerman is different then normal. The other parts that are different are the knuckles.

Maybe you should check the geometry on a losi 22 compaired to a B4.1
You might be surprised...

In the video you see that the rear keeps breaking loose. I bet he is never driven such a twitchy buggy before. Lol
